...Time is said to be eternal. It is said that it has neither a beginning nor an end. Yet men are able to measure it as years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds. They have also given meanings to the words – past, present and future. True, time has a meaning. It moves. What was yesterday is not today. What is today will not be tomorrow. Yesterday is gone. Today is and tomorrow is yet to come. Yet time is said to have no holiday. It exists always. The entire creation moves on according to a time pattern. There is birth, growth and death. There is time for everything. Plants flower and give fruits. Seasons come according to time. A child is born, grows into boyhood, adolescence, youth, middle age and old age according to age and time. Every movement of creation is linked with time. One cannot grow paddy in a month nor can a child become an adult in a year. Everything is fixed to a time-frame. Time is a free force. It does not wait for any one. It is commonly said that time and tide waits for no man. Time is money. A minute not usefully spent is an eternal loss. You can never get back the lost minute. One has to strike the iron when it is hot. The time flies and never returns. If you waste time it wastes you. ‘Time is the best medicine’, says Ovid. It is said that time heals all wounds and it even heals what reason cannot. All human beings are emotional. When negative emotions like fear, anger, envy and jealousy overtake them, they lose reason and act in haste......

...drugs because they think it’s the only choice instead of going to get help and their friends make them fit in with them. Boredom is also a big reason, if they’re bored they can just go get some drugs and be cool at the same time. They want to see how it feels. Small drugs also lead into big things. The effects that drugs have on these kids when they keep doing the drugs are horrific, such as they end up dying from them, losing friends and family members, not being able to get a job and being addicted to the horrible things. When all they need is some attention or maybe just someone to show they care about them. Kids keep doing these drugs because maybe they’re getting love at home or there depressed. Whatever the situation, they need someone to show them that they’re there to help them through the hard times. They’re losing loved ones because of some silly situation or some horrify tragedy when in reality they just want someone there. Being able to pass a drug test for a job is a huge thing. Most jobs make you take a drug test before you can’t start their jobs; if you can’t pass the screening test then what else are you going to do. What must you do now? What are you going to do with yourself? You need to clean yourself up and do better then maybe the next time around you can show them you’ve done good and changed for the better. Losing family members and friends can take a big toll on people. Losing a loved one is never good. Doing drugs can make people not want to be......

...Time What does time mean to me? For a long portion of my life time meant the hours I had in a day to do things that I thought were fun. Time was a way I measured how long I had until the next instance of something that I had to do. Time was not important it was numbers on a clock. Time was what I had to keep track of the days as they flew by with nothing important to do. Time in its essence had no meaning, no value, or no real importance. Then one remark made a point in time the most important occurrence of time in my life. One question asked gave value to time, one voice gave meaning to time, and one smile forever made time important. The first time I saw her made me question what I was using time for. How could someone I just met change my views on the importance of time? “How big is that shirt? It is like a tarp on you.” That one question followed by that one comment was the first event in my time that had real importance. It was the first time in my life that time had meaning, value, and importance. Her answer made me blush. Her smile made me forget who I was, and her eyes slowed time. As I tried to regain my thoughts I hurried to the back office. What was I thinking was the first thing that came to my mind. That was the first real event in my life. It was the first event in my life where time had a meaning....

...15 Jane Eyre – Preparation of Chapter 21 and 22 Jane’s return to Gateshead What is the significance of Jane’s repeated dream at the beginning of Ch 21? • Refers to what she once overheard from Bessie about dreams about small child foreshadowing trouble, either to one’s self or one’s kin. • Foreshadowing a great tragedy, not only John Reed and Mrs Reed, but trouble with Mr Rochester. • Very prominent, dreams persist for over a week and in many different forms. • Mystery/suspense. Jane’s return to Gateshead marks an important part of her development and demonstrates how she has developed and matured. Pick out and comment on relevant quotations. • Pg 262 “I still felt as a wanderer on the face of the earth; but I experienced firmer trust in myself and my own powers, and less withering dread of oppression. The gaping wound of my wrongs, too, was now quite healed; and the flame of resentment extinguished.” Gained confidence, dignity, and some sense of her place in the world. • Pg 264: “A sneer, however, whether covert or open, had now no longer that power over me it once possessed.” No longer agitated in that childish manner. • Pg 264: “…within the last few months feelings had been stirred in me so much more potent than any they could raise…” She has been enlightened and distracted by other things that these things now seem meaningless and insignificant. • Pg 265: “…received as I had been to-day, I should, a year ago, have......

...than half of employees globally now believe that their peers who work from home are just as productive, or more productive, than those in the office. Remote employees also feel like they get more done from the comfort of their own home. Of those who spend any time working from home, half believe they are more productive there than in the office, while 36 percent think they are equally as productive in both locations. Just 14 percent of those surveyed believe they get less done when working from home. Bob O'Donnell, founder and chief analyst at TECHnalysis Research, told the study's authors that many employees today have better equipment and faster Internet connections in their homes than they do in their place of work. "So, we're seeing experiments where more people are working at home more often than they had before," O’Donnell said in the research. At-home employees cite a number of benefits to working outside the office. The study revealed that 30 percent sleep more, 40 percent drive less and 46 percent feel less stressed. [10 Big Companies That Will Let You Work From Home ] However, working from home does have some downsides. More than 80 percent of at-home employees say others who are in the house at the same time — such as spouses, children, parents and pets — can distract them. Additionally, 20 percent of employees exercise less when working from home, while 38 percent snack more. Other negatives to working from home extend beyond how much work employees can get......

...found out that 9.5% of people in the 42 GEM countries analyzed are involved in starting a new business. Even countries that traditionally are not know as hotbeds of entrepreneurial activity are home to promising start-up companies. 2. WHAT IS AN ENTREPRENEUR (Page 5 to Page 8) At any given time, an estimated 10.1 million adults in the United States are engaged in launching a business, traveling down the path of entrepreneurship. An entrepreneur is one who creates a new business in the face of risk and uncertainty for the purpose of achieving profit and growth by identifying opportunities and assembling the necessary resources to capitalize on those opportunities. Entrepreneurs usually start with nothing more than an idea- often a simple one and then organize the resources necessary to transform that idea into a sustainable business. One business writer says that an entrepreneur is “someone who takes nothing for granted, assumes change is possible, and follows through; someone incapable of confronting reality without thinking about ways to improve it; and for whom action is a natural consequence of though. Researchers haves invested a great deal of time and effort over the last decade studying these entrepreneurs and trying to paint a clear picture of the entrepreneurial personality. Although these studies have produce several characteristics entrepreneurs tend to exhibit, none of them has the isolated a set of traits required for success. Below you......

...What is time? In a physical sense? In psychological terms? What does time do? How does it work? Can it be transcended? Time in many ways is like space. In physics, time and space are woven together, like a fabric upon which all matter lies. At the limits, near the speed of light, movement in time is yoked to movement in space. As spatial speed increases, temporal speed slows. Recent quantum physics, in the area of non-local phenomena, suggests that both time and space are not as they appear on our scale of existence. It appears that particles, separated in both space and time, interact, in a simultaneous manner. Indeed, in one of the strangest experimental effects, the future may causally impact the past (the implications of that one will make your head spin). Distant particles are somehow connected, are somehow not distant. It is as if the space and time between did not really exist, nor the proposed distinction. Rather, these physicists (cf. Yakir Aharonov, Jeff Tollakson, and Menas Kafatos) suggest that perhaps there is an underlying singularity or unity to matter, across both time and space. Many spiritual traditions, philosophies, songs, and so on have suggested similar ideas: "We are one, heartache to is a battlefield" Pat Benatar. Beyond funny ‘80's rocker references, such notions are at the heart of spiritual practices, across the various world traditions, even mainstream Christianity which proposes that God exists outside the bounds of time. This......

...1. What major stressor do you currently face? What creates anxiety or discomfort for you? (For example, “I have too much to do.”) Currently, the major stressor that I currently face is definitely time related. I feel like there is too much things that I have to do right now. I have part time job, and I am full time student. This quarter I take 3 classes, such as BBUS 470, BBUS 330, and BBUS 473. I feel all three classes are really heavy, and I feel very stressful somehow. 2. What are the major attributes or components of the situation? Divide the major problem into smaller parts or sub problems. I have three classes this quarter, and all of three have team projects. Also, every week has to due with assignments, and readings, and writings. I need to read case studies. I need to do my part in my groups. 3. What are the subcomponents of each of those subproblems? Divide them into yet smaller parts. * For class 470 (Capstone class): I need to finish for reading case study before every Tuesday and Thursday I need to read case study that is assigned for my group also, and I need to contribute for team write-up for that day too. I need to find data for my group project about company that our group picked. I need to get everyone in my team to meet up on one day to talk about our group project ‘s ideas. * For class 330: I need to read all interactive case in every chapter due on Tuesday and Thursday I need to do all class discussions online.

...guys are all bundled up." Clearly animated and looking well, he said he didn't feel much different than he did after his five-month station mission five years ago. Kelly and Kornienko had checked out of the space station 3½ hours earlier. In total, they traveled 144 million miles through space, circled the world 5,440 times and experienced 10,880 orbital sunrises and sunsets during the longest single spaceflight by an American. Kelly posted one last batch of sunrise photos Tuesday on Twitter, before quipping, "I gotta go!" His final tweet from orbit came several hours later: "The journey isn't over. Follow me as I rediscover # Earth!" Piloting the Soyuz capsule home for Kelly, 52, and Kornienko, 55, was the much fresher and decade younger cosmonaut Sergey Volkov, whose space station stint lasted the typical six months. The two yearlong spacemen faced a series of medical tests following touchdown. Before committing to even longer Mars missions, NASA wants to know the limits of the human body for a year, minus gravity. As he relinquished command of the space station Monday, Kelly noted that he and Kornienko "have been up here for a really, really long time" and have been jokingly telling one another, "We did it!" and "We made it!"...

...“Small is beautiful”[1]: Manufacturing Marketing Dilemma at Signode Tracko Components Ltd: PCB Division Amit Thomas was exuberant. Ever since he joined as Chief Marketing Officer, STC’s PCB division is showing exponential growth. From a sales of just over Rs24 million in 2000, during his first year of service itself, he could raise it to over Rs 40 million. Now browsing through the figures, he found that in the last nine months (Jan-Sep[2])the sales have reached over Rs 68 million[3]. He knew his strategy worked…Accepting both small and big orders had made this dramatic growth possible. He is looking forward to the next review meeting. He couldn’t wait to laugh at those production fellows who always cry foul at his strategies!!! The company Signode Tracko Components Ltd (STCL) is the Indian subsidiary of the Fortune 500 German MNC Signode Components Inc. STCL started operation during the rapid liberalization phase of India during early part of the last decade and soon positioned itself as an OEM and a major electrical component manufacturer that go into the production of many household white goods and electric equipment. During the late 1999, STCL decided to bifurcate its Printed Circuit Board division at Faridabad as an independent company under the same brand umbrella, to tap the booming electronic toys and edutainment market. During 1999, there were over 250 Printed Circuit Board (PCB) manufacturers in India, most of them in public sector. These......

...the states, but he lacked the know how to produce results. Four Logistical Alternatives Driscoll O. Scanlan an appointed state inspector of the coal mines did not use logistical alternatives to help protect the men working in the mine. As a representative to the public and a state appointed official Driscollo Scanlan could have utilized his power in ways that produce results. He was very active in inspecting and reporting his recommendations of his findings every three months to the Department of Mines and Minerals which were only treated as routine reports. These reports did not produce the results need to show the mine Management that the mines were a hazardous place and needed to be kept clean at all times. He should not have allowed the Centralia Company to go on for almost three years of ignoring the letters to comply. In order for him to produce results, he should have been more aggressive in his actions. For example, he could have provided a copy of the state law to Superintendent Norman and in the letter gave him a dead line on the cleanup of the mines or the mines will be closed. Also, Driscoll Scanlan could have also been proactive and scheduled a trip to the Chicago main office and meet Hawthorne 2 the President of the company so that he could have presented him with his findings and recommendations of protecting the working men in the mines. Furthermore, Scanlan should have held a press......

...[pic] |BOSTON COLLEGE |CARROLL SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT OPERATIONS & STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT | | Managing Customer Responsiveness at Littlefield Technologies – Spring 2007( Background It is now nine months later, and Littlefield Technologies has developed another DSS product. This product also is expected to have a 268-day lifetime. Littlefield once again has contracted with your operations management consulting team to manage their operations for this new product. Management Strategy Littlefield’s management would like to be able to charge the premium prices that customers would be willing to pay for dramatically shorter lead times. However, management has found that historic lead times[1] during the first 50 days of production often extend into several days, and so they have been unwilling to quote the shorter lead times to customers. They want your team to look into why this is occurring, and hopefully remedy the situation. Customer Demand Based on initial management analyses, customer demand for this new product is expected to be random, but the average demand will be level over the product’s 268-day lifetime. Pre-production market research suggested that the average daily demand level would be somewhere between 10 orders/day and 14 orders/day. Closer to Day 50, shop floor space constraints are limiting the number of jobs being accepted into the factory. Management is concerned about this outcome. At the end of this product’s lifetime, demand......
